Japan's factories and retailers tack on in November

In November, Japan's factories and retailers reported better-than-anticipated surge in activity, while minutes from the key bank's last policy gathering demonstrated board members lifting the prospect of reducing stimulus.

Thursday’s firm data along with suggestions of a shift away from the BOJ’s crisis-era policies come as the outlook for the world's number three economy goes from strength to strength.

In December, data disclosed that Japanese companies forecast a further soar in industrial output as firm overseas demand keeps backing factory activity as well as broader economic growth.

Some BOJ board members are actually encouraging debate about soaring rates or reducing purchases of exchange-traded funds responding to the improving outlook, as a summary of views expressed at last week's policy gathering revealed.

Another board member told that the BOJ requires examining the policy effects and also the probable side effects of ETF purchases from each angle due to leaping stock prices and earnings.
